I'm not a bassist, but an 8-string guitarist that needs some bass for a home studio project. I'm looking into getting a 6-string bass to tune F#BEADG, or possibly a half step below that. I was initially looking at the Ibanez SR706, but I'm not sure if 34" scale length is enough to get a good sound, and maybe I should look for at least 35". I'm most likely going to be recrding DI with an MXR M-80 or some sort of POD. What basses are out there with 6/7 strings, 35"+ scale length, and can be purchased new or used (but not rare) for 1000 USD or less? I searched around but it's difficult to thinking of keywords to get 'F# tuning" search results, since there's a character minimum. I read through every relevant thread I could find, but I haven't gotten anywhere. I might be hunting for a unicorn here, but you fine folks would know better than I would. PS - I'm aware bands such as Meshuggah actually tune UP to F#, but that's not what I'm wanting.
